Threaded Wasteboard Design

I decided to make my own threaded insert wasteboard (1/2" thick with 41x5mm inserts). I like the community one as well as the Carbide one but I would prefer to be able to clamp directly to the wasteboard rather than have to have a separate wasteboard to work with the others. Thoughts? I had considered building a few more to sell on my site if there was any interest. I will also be designing some clamps to go along with it.

VERY cool pattern!

but depending on the types of clamps you are using, you might be sacrificing efficiency and cost?

iā€™m no expert at CNC, but have been using t-slots for years in both my wood and metal shops.

my shop t-slot clamps easily reach 3-4 inches, so i went with this on my SO3:

I did something similar for my SO3, but since it has a larger bed, spaced the hole pattern on phi.
